The intent is to develop a comprehensive of of the issues that perfusionists face or encounter during bypass runs.
By developing a database of this nature, hopefully we will be able to get an idea of areas of greatest concern regarding potential for human or mechanical error. More importantly, it will alow us to share techniques for what to do if a problem arises. As well it may lead to identify a common element for concern regarding new techniques, or types of equipment.
The goal is for this to be an international registry, and to have more than 100 participants contributing. All participants will have instant access to the data results any time they need it.
